The first tip for winning in slots is to find a game that you enjoy playing. This sounds like a no-brainer, but finding a slot with the right aesthetics for you has a large psychological influence on your overall enjoyment and perception of your experience.
This is especially relevant for slot games since their themes often feature movies and musicians from popular culture. This also goes further to the actual gameplay.
Find a game you enjoy playing as much as you enjoy looking at it.
Don’t focus too much on the Return To Player because that figure is at its core theoretical and not really an accurate indication of how often you will be winning in a single gaming session.
Use Free Play Mode
Free play mode is included in casino games for a reason. It is a great way to learn the nuances of a particular slot title.
It’s a great way to figure out what bets work for you.
Pick A Wager Strategy
Consistency is important when it comes to playing slots. For the best results try working with a fixed wager strategy.
This means that you should either play with all your paylines active and go for low paying wins, or try place with less paylines and make your wagers larger.
These strategies come down to your personal preferences and budget.
Consider Different Slot Types
Wager strategy is especially relevant when you consider the many different types of slot games available. It is not like table games where there is a fixed set of rules with minimal variations.
Slot games can vary like night and day from each other. Progressive slots are popular because they offer huge payouts while 3-line slots are popular because they offer a simpler experience.
Use your free play credits and find the right game for you.
Bank Your Winnings
For me, the best and only strategy to employ is banking your winnings. How often have we won a big amount and we either think a) “Great I am hitting a streak, let’s keep playing” or b) “I have a lot of cash in my bankroll, lets double our wagers”.
Now it may make sense at the time, but statistically you probably aren’t hitting a streak and doubling your wagers in no way increases your odds. Bank your winnings as you make them and you will always walk away from a game with a smile on your face.
